    WATAUGA -- The Christmas tree is still up in the living room because it makes Monica Wilkinson happy. Life, for her, hasn't always been so.

    Monica and her fiance Leroy had planned since 2009 to marry and become parents together. But a series of miscarriages, a late-term still-born daughter, and financial struggles canceled the wedding several times.

    Then in January came a devastating diagnosis of Stage 4 ovarian cancer that has spread. Monica underwent emergency surgery and is in the process of 18 rounds of chemotherapy. Radiation therapy is next.

    "It just was seeming like every dream we had was just completely out of reach for everything," admits Monica.

    Bills from cancer treatment began piling up. After reaching out to charity organizations for financial assistance to make their wedding happen, Monica recently got an unexpected call out of the blue.

    "I got a call from his assistant," recalls Monica. "And she said Mark Cuban was going to help pay for our wedding. And I was completely floored. I thought it was a joke."

    Cuban does this type of thing all the time, but normally it's supposed to be more hush-hush.

    Nice story!

    Nice to hear. Especially after his comments were blown way out of proportion.

    Good point. It used to be that actions speak louder than words, .. but now the natioal media want words to mean more than actions.
